Poetry: Out of The Box
I've just launched the second set of my online poetry workshops for 2016. This one is called Poetry: Out of the Box. In this workshop we'll be examining the shape of poems, what constitutes a poem, and writing some prose poetry. There will be several tasks to complete, with scope for interpretation, open to poets of all levels. If you're a writer and would like to sign up, it would be lovely to have you on board: all details can be found over here. x

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
